Akun

Akun was, according to ancient sources, one of two sons of Djilki who was an older brother of the Viking leader, Rurik. In the 9th century, they travelled from Scandinavia to settle in the area we know today as Kiev in Ukraine.

The Viking fleet in Russia and Eastern Europe offers exceptional ambience with all the comforts of a fine hotel. Enjoy spacious staterooms and suites, an inviting restaurant and beautiful public spaces on elegant ships that set a new standard of river cruising excellence in the region.
